8:30 PM - WHAT'S HAPPENING! THE BEATLES IN THE USA
Dir. Albert and David Maysles, 1964, 81 min.
A humorous, freewheeling and candid account of The Beatles arrival in America in February 1964. The Maysles follow the Fab Four for five days, from the crazed JFK airport reception to unguarded moments inside the Plaza Hotel in preparation for their landmark Ed Sullivan Show appearance to their equally frenzied homecoming. Inspiring Richard Lester's A Hard Day's Night (1964), What's Happening! The Beatles in the U.S.A. was subsequently rereleased by Apple Corps. in an edited version as The Beatles: The First US Visit (1999).
Thanks to Apple Corps for making the footage available.
